Photos sitting in a box
Frozen moments that we lost
Broken door hinges were slammed
By abandonments right hand

Go from shout infested air
And every wall's unanswered prayer
From ceilings dripping down with tears
And hallways darkened by my doubt

Cuz love won't come home tomorrow
So I should let my heart know
The things we couldn't say
And now you'll never be my hero
Even if we could have said those
Things we couldn't say

What was now will never be
All my tears are autumn leaves
Leaving me and them alone
In a bright but broken home

To pull the weight of a flat world
Fight a cancer we can't cure
Waiting for the sky to fall
Silence built these prison walls

And love won't come home tomorrow
So I should let my heart know
The things we couldn't say
The things we couldn't say
And now you'll never be my hero
Even if we could have said those
Things we couldn't say
Things we couldn't say....

    General CommentWow. The words to this song are simply beautiful. Is this one of her new songs ? I'm guessing since I can't find it anywhere.

    Anyways. When I first read these words I personally think divorce, or separation .. but i may be wrong. The things like "shout infested air, and doors that were slammed," make me think fighting. The part about "Love won't come home tomorrow" makes me think of someone leaving. Maybe a father, and the amazing lyrics like "You could never be my hero, and in a bright but broken home" are simply amazing. It's everything I've ever felt.

    Thats simply my interpretation of the song.. hopefully more people will post. I love Katy. She's an amazing song writer and singer
